Fratelli Alessandria - Barbera d’Alba

Nebbiolo may get the acclaim in Piedmont, but 60 percent of all the grapes planted in this elite region in north western Italy are juicy, flavourful Barbera. It’s an early ripener and easier to farm than Nebbiolo, but also beloved as an outstanding food wine, with riveting acidity and lightness of body. This one is typically dark in colour – it both looks and tastes inky. It also has a lovely iris blossom aroma, tangy plummy fruit, and a leathery note. A classic Piemontese pairing would be a savoury mushroom ragu served with polenta, but spaghetti and meatballs or lasagne will step up nicely.
